It is hard to find any two-minute time period that can perfectly explain the crazy that is the Tea Party. It seems that time has come–this Tea Party Patriots video, originally uploaded to YouTube in March, has it all: An evil Commie-fascist dictatorship, enforced socialized health care, government stormtroopers…
Fifteen years in the future, freedom is dead. That’s right — no more freedom. Our once-great “city,” has been taken over by the Development party, which is apparently a pseudo-socialist dictatorship that demands a “contribution” from each citizen daily. A leader of the party is shown ominously declaring, “Our progress will not be stopped — because when we provide for every need…YOU are fully developed.”
…Cut to our hero telling a friend, “The more they give us, the more they control us.” He just can’t take it anymore! He snaps his whatever-the-right-wingers-imagine-that-card-is-for card and refuses to pay his nonspecific “contribution.” The (I don’t know, I guess) contribution police are about to kick down his door when–
He is rescued by a small group of citizens who just will not take it anymore. They have spent too long in the shadows, hiding. This Liberty Movement’s numbers are growing, and those in power are desperate to “SNUFF THEM OUT”
The video, which is approaching nearly FOUR TIMES the down-votes than up-votes on YouTube, ends with an inspirational speech by our protagonist to a crowd of white folks, ending in “Will you take up the torch?”
One can only assume that this asinine display is meant to exemplify the damage that Obamacare is doing to our country…you know, since Obama’s IRS stormtroopers are going to kick your door down and…I don’t know, feed your baby to a dingo or something if you don’t pay your taxes to fund the evil Communist keep-everyone-healthy scheme. There’s something in there about QR codes being evil, as well.
In the end, even in their ridiculous propagandistic filth, it’s just a bunch of angry white people screaming “Me, me, me!”
